Buy Hackers and Slackers a coffee


We’re a community of hackers obsessed with data science, data engineering, and software development. We strive to help awesome people become awesome professionals.

We write about what we learn and we learn a little every day. These tutorials started as a way to help aspiring engineers and data scientists around the world... but we never expected to get this much attention.

We will never run ads, nor will we ever hide behind a paywall (if we did those things, you probably wouldn’t have found us). Running costs for exceed over $100/month, pre-coffee. If you're a fan of what we do, we definitely won't turn down coffee :).

Todd, Thanks so much for your Flask tutorials - They're hands-down the best flask tutorials out there (yes, better than Miguel Grinberg's!) - and your deployment tutorial was a complete life saver.

I just stumbled upon your Flask-Session + Redis tutorial, and I have to say it is by far one of the most helpful-- and current-- tutorials on the topic! Thanks!

First post I've read from this site, loved it! Thanks for making life easier for a newbie like me! 👍 

Everybody is a newbie in living a different chapter of the same progression; it’s a fact easily (and perhaps intentionally) forgotten as we grow. The frustrations I experienced with self-taught programming had nothing to do with language, and everything to do with passive elitism found between lines of tutorials in the form of “implied knowledge.” I’ll never the frustration of knowing people could help others learn, but chose to distance themselves via unhelpful, esoteric, and self-inflating vernacular. If there’s one thing I hope for, it’s that I don’t become self-important enough to help “newbies,” when I deserve that title as much as anybody.
